Bart Bruchok, from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in Orlando, Florida, has joined the Facilities Management Department as its new director of capital projects.
Upon his arrival, last month, the associate vice chancellor for facilities management, Phil Jones, expressed in an email announcement, “Bart comes to us with a wealth of experience in facilities management, construction management, and leadership.”
Throughout his career, he served as project manager and chief engineer in the Navy Civil Engineer Corps both domestically and overseas and as assistant director for construction at the University of Central Florida. While with the VA, he served as project executive for a very complex and highly visible mega-project.
“I am both pleased and honored to be part of this incredible University,” said Bruchok. “I hope to use my past experience with other high-performing institutions to lead the capital projects team to even greater levels of achievement in providing new facilities for which students, staff and faculty can be proud!”
Bruchok earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the United States Naval Academy and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Maryland.
He replaces John Fessler, who retired earlier this year.
